YEAH! Magazine: An Alternative to the Telephone Pole

Seattle. The summer of 1987. Local musician and writer Wendi Dunlap decided to start a fanzine documenting the city’s flourishing music scene. Calling it YEAH! Magazine, Dunlap intentionally focused on the bands that other publications didn’t cover, like the Squirrels and the Fastbacks.

The Internet. The summer of 2011. Wendi Dunlap starts putting up digital versions of YEAH! Magazine online, over at her fantastic blog Slumberland. Giving the ‘zine a gander opens a doorway into the history of a diverse music community – that was right on the verge of making a huge impact on popular culture. Not all the bands made it big, but they all played a part. Dunlap helps shed light on their story.
